ART IN SOCIETY

Art in everyday life: post cards, comic books, embroidered socks, fertility charms, penny dreadfuls, samplers--Bayle's collection erases the distinction between utilitarian and transcendental objects. Material gathered from all over including the USA, Nazi Germany, ancient Rome, New Guinea, Africa, some of it in color, and all of it culturally significant. Divided into four parts: Sex, War, Worship and Work.
